Developers can now control when their skill goes live after certification using the self-service publishing feature. With this new feature, you can schedule a skill to go live on the Alexa skill store at a specific future date.
To use this feature, choose the “Just Certify” option under Certification > Submission tab on the developer console when submitting the skill for certification.
Once the skill is certified and moves to the “Certified” status, in the Certification > Submission tab, you can either:
- Choose to publish the skill at a time of your choosing using the “Publish Now” option or
- Schedule the skill to go live at a future date through the “Publish on [DATE] [TIME SLOT]” option.
